Septic tank repairs

Typically whenever there is a problem with a septic tank the first option is to replace the entire system. Now whilst this is sometimes the only option available it isn’t always 100% necessary. An Express Wastewater Solutions expert will always exhaust every possible repairable option first before upgrading the entire system.

Case Study: One of our customers was recently quoted over $16,000 to have a full treatment plant conversion by another plumber. We managed to find a repair solution for less than $4000. Thats ⅓ of the price she was initially quoted by someone else.

Having an old trench system instead of a newer treatment plant means that there is no cost of servicing. All of the repairs that we perform are all within council guidelines and have been approved so you can be rest assured that the work we conduct on your property is compliant.

Septic treatment system replacement and upgrades

There are many reasons why you may need to replace or upgrade to a new system. Below we have compiled the 3 most common:

New dwelling

If you happen to have an older style septic tank you will most probably need to upgrade if adding a new dwelling to your home. We can explain the processes required and guide you through the process from start to finish, from the initial design to installation of your new treatment plant.


As above you will want to upgrade you system as you upgrade how many bedrooms will be in the home. The reason for this is due to your trenches being specifically sized based on the number of bedrooms. The more bedrooms a house has the more waste the house will potentially produce. 

If you have any questions or concerns about your system prior to starting renovations feel free to give us a call and our experts will be able to answer all of your queries.

Failed trenches

There are numerous reasons why septic trenches fail, these can include:

  • Tree roots intrusion
  • Dirt buildup
  • Crushed trenches
  • Collapsed pipe
  • Water logging

A small to large wet patch in your lawn that doesn’t ever seem to dry out is a tell tale sign that your septic tank isn’t working correctly or is leaking. You may even notice that your septic tank is over full due to not being able to empty correctly. 

In either case give us a call today on 1300 722 517 and we will be happy to give you a free inspection to put your mind at ease.
